Protect Your Rights
Depending on the cause of your accident, there are different forms of recovery that may be available to you. Many work accidents give rise to a workers’ compensation claim. If you were injured by a dangerous or defectively designed product (e.g., construction equipment, safety devices or power tools), however, you may have a basis to obtain compensation through a product liability claim. If your injuries were caused by a third party (someone other than your employer or a co-worker), you may have a basis to obtain compensation through a third-party liability claim, which is a type of personal injury claim.
Dickson & Pope, P.A., offers a comprehensive injury claims practice. Judy A. Pope has experience advocating on behalf of clients in workers’ compensation, product liability and third-party liability claims, so she is uniquely capable of identifying the types of compensation you may be entitled to receive.
